11-10 University reports four students in isolation, three positives at health center

Pittsburg State University reports that 29 symptomatic students were tested for COVID-19 at the Bryant Student Health Center between Nov. 3 and Nov. 9. Of those, three were positive. Currently, four students are in isolation after off-campus testing.   

In the same period, one faculty or staff member reported an infection. The health center also administered 14 COVID-19 vaccines in the same seven days, all of which were booster shots. 

Bryant Student Health Center Director of Operations Rita Girth noted that the only tested/positive numbers the university can reliably report are those from the health center. Isolation numbers can differ between reporting agencies due to students being tested elsewhere and then later reporting as PSU students via the Crawford County Health Department.  

Quarantine numbers are managed solely by the Crawford County Health Department. Numbers change daily.
